Harnessing her expertise in solving complex sewing riddles, Holly landed on the design of this no-sew leather envelope as the most elegant solution for her every day needs.

The curves remind us of a closed tulip and of the familiar swoops of the Golden Gate Bridge, tempered by the straight, utilitarian edges of the closure strap. Handsome on its own as clutch. Or thrown into a larger bag as a dignified pouch. Survey also says dude-OK.

The body is made from a single piece of belt-weight leather, cut with beveled edges, folded, and held together by a single brass rivet. Then there’s one more rivet to hold the closure strap in place and a brass button stud to lock it down. Stiff and hearty right now, but will soften and wear beautifully.

Made right here in the shop.
We’ve got a few available–please give us a call if you’re interested. (415) 552-0112
